HBO released the first trailer for True Detective Season 2, giving fans a first look at Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in their mysterious True Detective roles.

True Detective Season 2 Trailer

Very little is known about the long awaited second season of HBO’s anthology series, and ever since the official casting of Vaughn, Farrell, McAdams and Kitsch fans have been scrambling for any details.

The new trailer doesn’t give away much in terms of plot. It mainly consists of various actors exchanging long stares, but what little clues it does reveal confirm what’s already been released about the series.

Vaunghn stars as Frank Seymon, “a career criminal in danger of losing his empire,” who has a past relationship with corrupt detective Ray Velcoro (Farrell). McAdams will play Ani Bezzerides, a “no-nonsense” sheriff with gambling problems, and Kitsch is playing Paul Woodrugh, a highway cop and veteran who suffers from PTSD.

While season 1 of True Detective was entirely directed by Cary Fukunaga, season 2 will not follow the one-writer and one-director model. Nic Pizzolatto is returning as the sole writer of all eight episodes, but Fast & Furious director Justin Lin only helmed the first two episodes.

True Detective Season 2 Synopsis:

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly) struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Hiway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions and billions of dollars.

True Detective Season 2 will premiere on HBO, June 21.
